Four U.S. Airlines Face August 8 Deadline to Comply with China’s Demands on Taiwan

Four U.S. airline companies that partially caved to Beijing’s demands on identifying Taiwan on their websites have requested an extension as they consider further bowing to pressure.

Delta Airlines, American Airlines, United Airlines, and Hawaiian Airlines have requested an extension of a deadline given to them by China to change their descriptions of Taiwan on their websites to August 8.

China’s civil aviation regulator demanded earlier this year that 44 international airlines change the way they reference Taiwan on their websites, arguing that Taiwan is not a separate country, but a breakaway province of China and should be described as such.

The American people should not be surprised at this. It's the exact same thing as the pressure to eradicate statues of the patriots of the South in the Civil War.
There is NO difference!
